    November 1, 2022, is the New Date

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | September 25th, 2022

    November 1, 2022, is the New Date

    In October of last year, I wrote a blog titled – Finally, a Release Date, February 12, 2022, where I showed the cover of what I thought would be my new book. I want to thank all of you who went to Amazon and pre-ordered the book. By now, you should have gotten your money back. 

    I wanted to tell you what has happened since that time. As I mentioned in October, publishing a book is like building a house. There are many steps before the final project. When I wrote the blog in October, the book’s galleys came out. The galleys are the unedited version of the book to see what it will look like and put the final touches. It is similar to the rendering of a house. The galleys are also used to get blurbs for the book and sent to media outlets to allow for book reviews. The book is finalized when all the blurbs and feedback have been incorporated into the revised book before it goes to pre-publication. Based on the feedback, we made significant changes to the cover and title, which delayed the release date. The final book is a hardcover book, and the book manufacturer has promised the book will be available to the publisher before the release date of November 1, 2022. 

    This past weekend, I spoke to a community grassroots group called Circle of Grandmothers, whose aim is to support each other and share information with younger mothers. I had an opportunity to read excerpts from the book. The discussion that followed was great. Some members are holding the paperback version of the book, which is not on sale and is being used for pre-release marketing.

    One of the blurbs on the book:

    …It is a beautiful book that tackles with grace many topics people may find unapproachable. What I loved about this book is how the topics are interspersed so that one may read and be informed about issues that may not be of immediate concern. Also, the encouraging words to truly view your doctor as a companion in health issues and even the idea that a doctor would take the time and love to write such letters gives me hope in the medical establishment as a whole.             

                                                   Cara Blessley Lowe

    Why the change in the cover and title? Based on the feedback, it was thought that having my face on the cover might limit my audience. This book is for all women, and I did not want a situation where women would not pick up the book because they were hung up on the cover. My picture is still there but on the inner leaflet of the book. The title was changed to Sincerely, Your Gynecologist, courtesy of my daughter, Chinenye. It was felt this title was a better sequel to the first book Letters to My Sisters, Plain Truth and Straightforward Advice from a Gynecologist.  

    I am incredibly proud of this new book, and it would not have happened without each of you. You are my motivator. You are the reason why I write. I am committed to educating women. When women are educated, they are empowered. I believe an empowered woman is a healthy woman. 

    The book is available for pre-order on Amazon. We expect to have links for those who prefer e-books on Apple iBooks, GooglePlay or GoogleBooks, Amazon Kindle, and Barnes and Noble Nook. If you wish to pre-order on Amazon, please click this link.

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
